Ponderosa Valley Vineyard & Winery
3171 Hwy 290
Our standard of quality is that every wine must be award winning; or we do not serve it. Nestled in the scenic Ponderosa Valley on the southern slopes of the beautiful Jemez Mountains. We are the largest Riesling vineyard in New Mexico located a short drive from Albuquerque, Santa Fe and Los Alamos. The vineyards and winery, 5800 ft. above sea level, are on deep well drained volcanic ash deposits, which along with our long hot days and cool nights provide the ideal conditions to develop our unique wine character. By picking these grapes at different ripeness levels, we produce three distinctly different award winning styles. In addition, Pinot Noir, also a gold medal winner, has become our second signature varital. These four wines, along with numberous other current releases are available in our tasting room for you to sample.
